Romney Attended Pro-Choice Fundraiser In 1995


By now, it’s well known that while presumed GOP nominee Mitt Romney says he wants to “get rid of Planned Parenthood” and curtail women’s rights, he was once a staunch defender of the right to choose. He even attended a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood in 1994, to whom his wife once wrote for $150.

Now, Buzz Feed digs up a photo of Romney at another fundraiser for a pro-choice group, this one of Romney at the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC) awards ceremony in 1995:

The MWPC is the state affiliate of the National Women’s Political Caucus, which was founded by feminist Gloria Steinem. The group lists “[r]eproductive freedoms and the right to choice” as one of its top priorities and “prides itself in increasing the number of pro-choice women elected and appointed into office every year.”
